Students Warned About Not
Taking Extra Long Holiday

,A warning not to yield to temp-
rtation and cut classes today and
tomorrow in advance of the
Thanksgiving holiday was issued
by Student Legislature treasurer,
Bob Neary, '54.. -
Neary, who helped make the
long proposed holiday an actual-
ity last fall, cautioned that the,
program is only probationary and
will be reviewed in two years.
"If classes are cut excessively,"
he said, "the chances of having
the holiday renewed will not be

AFTER a two-year struggle by
1the Legislature, the plan was
passed last November by the
Dean's Conference.
Prior to the meeting which
gave -the stamp of approval,

law under which the archbishop
of the Moscow wing of the Rus-
sian Orthodox Church was ousted
from his cathedral.
"Here. there is a transfer by
statute of control over churches,"
Justice Reed wrote in the 8 to- 1
majority opinion. "This violates
our rule of separation between a
church and a state."

THE DECISION, to which Jus-
tice Jackson took vigorous excel,-
tion, applied to Archbishop Ben-
jamin Fedchenkoff, who was re-
moved from St. Nicholas Cathed-
ral, New York City-.
The litigation grew ,out sof the
1924 separation. of a North
American faction from the
mnother church in Russia. The
New York Legislature then add-

porations Law a section which
designate the Nort Amerin

working out a plan which would
be acceptable to all the admin-
istrative heads.
Before last fall, legislator Dave
Belin, '54L, had worked a year
and a half laying the groundwork
for the holiday. Complicated
scheduling difficulties had to be
solved before approval could be
given to the plan.
In sthe fall of 1950 the Dean's
Conference had also considered
the Thanksgiving holiday issue,
but no definite action was taken
at that time.

Policy Seen
As 'Sicide
Prof. Preston Slosson of the his-
tory department, told a group
meeting under the auspices of the-
campus UNFSCO Council, that
Daniel F. Malan's racial policy in
the Union of Southi Africa is dis-
asterous and suicidal, both to the
prime minister, himself, and pos-
sibly to the world.
Speaking, at the International
Center Sunday, Prof. Slosson
went on to say that the race riots
now ensuing in the Union may
provoke open racial war through-
out the continent of Afica.

HE POINTED OUT that six dis-

Prof. Slosson hoped that the
coming elections in the Union
would see the defeat of Malan by.
the moderate South African Par-
ty composed of liberal British and
Boer elemetits.
He concluded by suggesting the
government clean up the slums in
Johannesburg, pass a good hous-
ing Jaw, give a wider base of edu-
cation to the entire population and
include more natives under the
suffrage act.

CHICAGO - (AP) - A former
state's attorney testified yesterday
William Heirens was given a
"truth drug" injection in jail be-
fore he pleaded guilty to three
murders in Chicago.
Heirens, now 24 years old, is
serving three consecutive life
terms for the slaying of Suzanne
Degnan, 6 years old, Frances
Brown, 33 years old, and Mrs. Jo-
sephine Ross, 43 years old, in 1945.
He now is seeking his freedom on
a petition filed under the Illinois
Post-Conviction Review Law.

Superior Court judge and former-
ly a first assistant state's attorney

under William J. Tuohy when
Heirens was arrested, gave the
first legal record acknowledgment
of using the drug.
Crowley testified. that Dr.
Francis 3. Gerty, 'a Cook.County
psychiatrist, told him he thought
Heirens was malingering and
was faking amnesia.
"I asked Dr. Gerty how this
could be confirmed," Crowley re-
lated, "and he said by using so-
dium pentothal." The "truth"*
After consultation with the
state's attorney and other doctors
the decision was made to use the
drug, Crowley said.

Students, faculty, contributors
and Hillel commissioners from all
over the country 'crowded into the
formal dedication of the ultra-
modern new Hillel building Sunday
which consummated six years of
planning n bu""iding.
President of Brandeis University,
Abranm L. Sacher, making the
main dedication address stressed
the "ambassadorial service" the
Hillel foundation and other or-
ganizations of this sort could pro-
vide in dissipating misunderstand-
ing about minority groups.

"IT IS 1M1iORTANT to have
structures like this, not because. we
want grandiose buildings but be-
cause Jewish students will be able
to identify themselves and the val-
'ues they learn with beauty not din-
giness,"' President Sacher said.
He accused the present gen--
eration of "sitting on the mourn.-
ers' bench because it feels trap.-
ped by social, political and eco-
nomic forces beyond its con-
troLa Today's youth are ready
to zoom into opportunism for
they feel they are not masters
of their own destiny," the dis-
tinguished speaker continued.
"We must prove that life is pur-
poseful by injecting a dose of spir-

itual adrenelin to stimulate the
spiritual quotient to supplement
the intelligence quotient," Presi--
dent Sacher concluded.

thur J. Lelyveld, director of the

"there is now the obligation to
complete -the, task of filling the
structure with an effective pro-.
gram for which It was erected."
